Oh, these look fabulous! I've just started the same baby blanket in Cotton-Ease and am really liking the way it is knitting up. Now I can't wait to finish! Great work!
Maybe it's because I didn't do a gauge swatch, but this blanket came out huge using Cotton-Ease and size 7 needles. I only did 18 garter ridges for blocks 9 and 10, or else it would have come out as an adult sized blanket. Plus I was getting tired of garter stitch.
EEK! I didn't gauge swatch either...I was just going to wing it and hope for the best. But that is good to know. I am knitting on size 6 needles as I tend to knit super loose. But thanks for the heads up.
